Hacktoberfest 22: Celebrate Open Source Together with AppFlowy
Hacktoberfest 2022

Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of open-source software organized by DigitalOcean. It is for everyone, from first-time contributors to seasoned open-source developers.

New for 2022

According to DigitalOcean, "This year, we’re encouraging low- and non-code contributions so more people can do their part for open source regardless of their technical experience."
